Bernd Schneider (born 20th July, 1964 in St. Ingbert, West Germany) is a German former racing driver.

F3000

Schneider entered the International F3000 series in 1988 with the Forti Corse team. He was a regular points scorer and finished the year in eighth place - having taken one win at the Imola round.

He continued with Forti in 1989, taking a best result of third place at the season opener at Silverstone - enough for 15th place.

WTCM

1988

Schneider's F3000 efforts earned him a handful of rounds with the Works Mercedes-Benz team in the inaugural World Touring Car Masters championship in 1988. His drives came about after regular driver Jerry Mahony was released from his contract due to a string of poor performances. Schneider shared the car with former Grand Prix driver Jochen Mass and scored a pair of wins at Monza.

1990

Schneider returned to the WTCM in 1990, being signed for the Works Opel Team Irmscher outfit alongside Volker Strycek. Consistent results throughout the season (including 10 class wins) meant that Schneider won the Class D championship with a handful of races left.

1991

Schneider remained at Irmscher in 1991, however this time under the banner of Vauxhall Sport. He was partnered by 1988 series champion Tim Harvey as the pair became the two highest-paid drivers on the grid. Schneider would also participate in three Formula One Grands Prix for Rial-Porsche.
